LG starts its own four-horse race for mid-range market domination

LG have rolled out four new mid-range smartphones starting in South America and followed by Europe, Asia, Middle East and North Africa.

Launched just days before Mobile World Congress, the new phones Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy are available in both 3G and 4G LTE variants and contain their signature power buttons on the back of the devices below the rear cameras.

Featuring the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, except for the LG Joy which features the Android 4.0 Kitkat, the LG Magna, Spirit and Leon contain the standard 8GB internal storage and 1GB memory as against 4GB internal storage and 512MB memory in LG Joy.

The phones also contain several new features like Gesture Shot and Glance View which will enable users to take perfect selfies using three second countdowns and quickly access time, recent messages or missed calls with a downward swipe of the screen respectively.

Even though they aren't as classy as most flagship phones, these new models will be easier on your wallet, costing anywhere between £100 and £250 and will be perfect utility phones for your daily routines. However, LG has not released the price list for Europe as yet, so we will limit ourselves to speculation until we get our hands on the devices and their prices.
